First trailer for Obvious Child, starring Jenny Slate

Obvious Child is one of the films I regret missing out on during SXSW. It stars Jenny Slate, in her first starring role (though she's played numerous, fabulous supporting roles), as a comedienne who's life takes an unexpecte...

Netflix Now: Anyone else watching American Idol? Edition

I've really been digging this season of American Idol. Despite the ridiculous amount of cuts to Jennifer Lopez during the performances, most of the contestants this year have been great. And the new judging panel isn't too ba...

Red Band trailer for Walk of Shame, starring Elizabeth Banks

As Flixist's News Editor, I've seen so many trailers they eventually start bleeding into each other. Premises start sounding the same, jokes sound the same, and then things stop being entertaining. And then there's Walk of S...

Paul Walker's brothers stepping in to help with Fast & Furious 7

The Fast and Furious films have always been a guilty pleasure of mine. I don't have to have a reason; they were just a ton of fun. When I set up my first entertainment center, I used the opening race from 2 Fast 2 Furious to ...

Final trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past photo
Final trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past
by Nick Valdez

It looks like they've saved the best trailer for last. As X-Men: Days of Future Past gets closer to its release later this May, we finally have a trailer that is as great looking as the first one. We have a good amount of plot without spoiling any of the details (such as Wolverine's mode of time travel), some neat character shout outs (and a good, hard look at Quicksilver in stupid looking googles motion), and the set pieces are full of zazz. Oh and those Sentinels look fantastic. 

Fox may have trouble with its posters, but these trailers really make the X-Men pop. I'm hoping the film can live up to this. X-Men: Days of Future Past opens May 23rd.

And while you're waiting, why not give the Flixist X-Cast a listen? It's good stuff.

First trailer for Intramural, a sports parody featuring SNL cast members

I'm not the biggest fan of sports movies as they all tend to look the same. But every once in a while, something new comes along and manages to rock the sports genre with its uniqueness. Intramural might make it close to tha...

First official trailer for David Fincher's Gone Girl photo
First official trailer for David Fincher's Gone Girl
by Jonathan Wray

The first trailer for David Fincher's highly anticipated adaptation of Gillian Flinn's 2012 novel Gone Girl has finally appeared online. Starring Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike, Gone Girl tells the story of the search for Amy Dunne, who has gone missing on their fifth anniversary. One of the prime suspects is her own husband, Nick Dunne.

This will be the tenth film directed by David Fincher, whose credits include Panic Room, Se7en, The Game, Fight Club, The Social Network, and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

Trent Reznor will team up with David Fincher for the third time to score the film. He previously partnered with Fincher to score The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and The Social Network.

There's a very short list of directors that I trust to turn whatever they're given into gold, and David Fincher's name is on that list. Fincher plans to deviate from the book, including giving the story a brand new ending. Did Nick Dunne kill his wife? Find out in theaters on October 3rd.

Second How to Train Your Dragon 2 trailer spoils dragons

Much like the first full trailer for How to Train Your Dragon 2, this second trailer continues to spoil a lot of the movie. But rather than spoil the entirety of the film's plot, we only get a bit of it. It's a shame because...
